Is the 8800GTS you're getting a G80 or G92 core?
well i was going to try the 8600 and 8800 in sli to see if the 8600 increased performance a little or if the 8x speed bottlenecked the 8800, i thought you could do that? guess not... anyway, yea if i cant then i guess ill just do one each and compare performance, then put the 8800 in permanent

i believe its the G80 core.. that isnt confirmed, but this is an older version of 8800GTS with 96 stream processors if that helps

You can only run Nvidia video cards with matching GPUs in SLI. Such as two 8600 series or two 8800 series cards.

The 8800GTS offers nearly double the performance of an 8600GT as shown here: Desktop VGA Charts 2007
